Revolving Art Incubator
Creative Director
Lagos, Nigeria
Jumoke is a storyteller, cultural interlocutor and the founder/creative director of Revolving Art Incubator [RAI], a trans-disciplinary incubator space focused on localising knowledge and ideas for artistic and social development.
RAI was listed in a New-York Times article in February 2019, as one of the Sharpest artist-led Spaces in Lagos.
Jumoke has been part of the global cultural discourse in the last 8-years and has participated at several fora locally and internationally. Her conceptual framework and process are largely informed by the theory of “Global Localization” or “Glocal” with a local approach to engagement where individual cultures, histories, traditions are presented as independent frames within a global picture.
IAM (Intense Art Magazine) an independent artistic platform dedicated to women in art, fashion and design from Africa listed Jumoke as one of three Nigeria’s New Art Scene Architect in 2017.
She directed Lagos at Large, a Virtual Reality (VR) Film which premiered at the 2019 International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) with the theme Domesticating Realities and was nominated in two award categories, Digital Storytelling and Special Jury Prize for creative use of technology. Lagos at Large was recently featured on the Forbes list of top XR experiences of 2019.
She currently lives and works out of Lagos Nigeria.
